Overview of COVID-19

The 2019 Novel (New) Coronavirus called COVID-19 is a new disease, and we are still learning how it spreads, the severity of illness it causes, and to what extent it may spread in the United States.

COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. The virus passes between people who are close in contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets when an infected person talks, coughs or sneezes.These droplets can land in the mouths, noses, or eyes of those who are nearby. 

It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. These symptoms or a combination of these symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus:
• Fever
• Cough
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Chills
• Repeated shaking with chills
• Muscle pain
• Headache
• Sore throat
• New loss of taste or smell

Older adults (60 years and older) and people of all ages with underlying medical conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, lung disease, and weakened immune system are most at-risk for serious illness from COVID-19. Pregnant women have had a higher risk of severe illness when infected with viruses similar to COVID-19 and may be more vulnerable.

If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19, call 911 and get medical attention immediately.
In adults, emergency warning signs*:
• Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
• Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
• New confusion or inability to arouse
• Bluish lips or face

*This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning. 

Testing for COVID-19

Below outlines the criteria for when a New Yorker is eligible for diagnostic COVID-19 testing. This criteria is subject to change based on test availability, testing capacity, and for public health reasons.

Testing for COVID-19 shall be authorized by a health care provider for individuals when:
1. An individual is symptomatic or has a history of symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g. fever, cough, and/or trouble breathing), particularly if the individual is 70 years of age or older, the individual has a compromised immune system, or the individual has an underlying health condition, OR
2. An individual has had close (i.e. within six feet) or proximate contact with a person known to be positive with COVID-19, OR
3. An individual is subject to a precautionary or mandatory quarantine, OR
4. An individual is employed as a health care worker, first responder, or other essential worker who directly interacts with the public while working, OR
5. An individual presents with a case where the facts and circumstances, as determined by the treating clinician in consultation with state or local department of health officials, warrant testing, OR
